The Crocodile Presents:
The Ocean Blue, Jupe Jupe

  • The Ocean Blue

    The Ocean Blue

    Indie Pop

    The Ocean Blue arrived as the 1980s drew to close, and their debut record on the famed Sire Records label in 1989 seemed to summarize the best of the musical decade. The band of four teenagers from Hershey, Pennsylvania quickly achieved widespread acclaim and radio & MTV airplay, with top 10 Modern Rock/College Radio hits like Between Something and Nothing and Drifting, Falling. They followed their debut release with the dreamy and atmospheric Cerulean, which included perhaps their most beloved song, Ballerina Out of Control, and followed that with their highest charting pop album Beneath the Rhythm and Sound and the single Sublime, featuring a video of the band in the sublime landscape of Iceland. The band's fourth record for Mercury/PolyGram, See The Ocean Blue, was a mid-90s departure to a more guitar rock sound of the 60s and 70s but with the band's 80s DNA peeking through. After a busy decade of recording and touring, the band left the majors in the late 90s. Several independent releases and related touring followed in the 2000s, including 2000's Davy Jones Locker and 2004's Waterworks, and wider international touring. In 2013, after much anticipation, the band released their first full length record in 10 years, Ultramarine, on Korda Records, a Minneapolis-based label cooperative the band helped launch that same year. The record was a welcome return for fans of the band as well as a younger generation of like-minded fans, and garnered widespread praise as one of their very best albums.  In 2015, the band worked with Sire and Rhino Records to reissue their first 3 Sire albums on vinyl. The band marked the occasion by performing the first 2 albums in their entirety at limited concerts throughout the U.S. In 2016, the band did a South American Tour where some of their most passionate fans reside.

    The band has now returned with their signature dream pop sound on the beautifully powerful Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves. Out now on Korda Records.

    Jupe Jupe

    Pop

    Jupe Jupe creates a dark and danceable soundscape: vocals croon over pulsing beats as guitars and sax cut across panoramic washes of synth.

    The band serves up a noir cocktail of new music with its new EP, Nightfall—five hook-laden songs about yearning that are simultaneously upbeat and melancholy. The group spent over a year meticulously crafting each tune on Nightfall—including adding a vital new saxophone element to its sound— before teaming up with producer Matt Bayles at Studio Litho in Seattle, Washington.

    A former member of Minus the Bear, Bayles has produced and mixed a number of seminal albums by Botch, Mastodon, Murder City Devils, He Whose Ox Is Gored, The Blood Brothers, and many more. He also produced and engineered the previous Jupe Jupe album, 2017’s Lonely Creatures.

    Since forming in 2010, the Seattle quartet has brought its unique style to four other original releases—Invaders, Reduction in Drag, Crooked Kisses, and Lonely Creatures—creating infectious tracks influenced by post-punk, synth-pop, and haunting Americana. The group also joined forces with a variety of renowned artists and producers for its remix album, Cut Up Kisses (featuring Lusine, Rick G. Nelson of The Afghan Whigs, Mike Simonetti, Erik Blood, and others).

    Jupe Jupe is made up of My Young on vocals and synths; Bryan Manzo on guitar, bass, and saxophone; Patrick Partington on guitar; and Jarrod Arbini on drums and percussion. The four members are veterans of the Seattle and Austin music scenes.
